Nature Conservation Foundation has launched Jackals: Past and Present, a two-month, public, nationwide online survey to find out more about the golden jackal. Although jackals are distributed widely in India, very little is actually known about them. But at the same time, because they are also easily recognised, we hope to draw on what people already know about jackals to uncover trends in how widely or how often they are being seen, and learn about the threats they face across the country.
To do this, we really need your participation. So, please come tell us about all your jackal sightings. We also need you help to spread the word about this survey. Please share the link to the survey through email, on Facebook, on Twitter, or by whatever other means you can and help us get as many people involved as possible. The more information we get, the better we can understand jackals.
As the survey progresses, we will share results with you on the website and on our Facebook page. Once the survey concludes, we will put the results online and we will also share the complete dataset publicly. Meanwhile, if you have ideas or suggestions you’d like to share, please do write to us at jackal at conservation dot in.
